Top 10 Free Campsites Around the World

There's nothing quite like the freedom of camping -- packing up a home away from home and heading wherever your itchy feet take you.

It's also one of the most economical means of accommodation and best if you want to get close to the wild world.

If you are after an even more rugged, and budget-friendly experience, you can actually camp free of charge in several countries.

Free camping works on a trust basis; everything campers bring into sites needs to be taken out again and special care must be taken not to disturb wildlife or damage the natural beauty of the area. Many also have a restriction on the number of nights you can stay so contact the local park manager if you have any questions.
